    i just got these guys. bought em as fillers since i dont have frenzy (is red cough cough) and buzzsaw. think ive seen pics/auctions before but anyways...

    ive bought KO cassettes before, ive the clear version of rumble (is blue cough cough) and laserbeak, but while those were colorless, these, as can be plainly seen, clear but with color.

    all in all, similar quality as the clear version. except where the clear version had die cast parts, these are made entirely of plastic.

    besides a clear blue rumble, the store i bought these from also had pairs of bot/bird cassettes in all neon blue and neon orange. i think RW once posted abt these when he picked them up from china or sumin.

    Yah RW hooked me up the guys contact info and I passed it to one of local hobby shops out here. So i'm hoping all goes well and he gets some KO G1 goodies from them.

    I have seen them on EPay for around $20 to $25 plus shipping which can range between $20 to $25 from what I can remember. Do a search and see what you find.

    25 is definitely the higher side. when i got the clear ones way back they cost less.

    That's not a limerick, thats alliteration, multiple similar consonant sounds. Limericks have five lines, and sometimes start out "there once was a man from Nantucket...."

    Those are kinda cool looking. Do they look all "glowy" in the right light?



    And Frenzy is blue, Rumble is red. *cough* :lol

    oh cool. despite knowing what alliteration is for some reason i always thought 'she sells seashells...' was a limerick.

    CZ,
    i got it locally from a brick n mortar store. these were available via pre orders thru a group order at sgcollect.com a while back. i think their supplier is a china/HK one. the store i got it from sold it for the price of a voyager, as i mentioned earlier, i got the clear versions cheaper by about usd5 from the group buy.

    if you guys are serious, try contacting the mod over at sgcollect.com, prodimus, hes got the hook up.

    Those guys are very cool... clear cassettes... I wonder why they never thought of that 'back when' for an official release?

    Oh, as for the RiR-FiB/RiB-FiR debate, I thought Matt put this one to rest...

    The thing that irks me is how these knock-offs are selling for so much. I would like to pick some of these up, but they should only be about $10 per set. Seriously. Why does EVERYTHING have to be so expensive? At the end of the day, these are toys. They're not worth going broke over.

    Another thing -- How are these KOs being produced? If the fans could get their hands on the molds, everyone could chip in together to produce a fan line of knock-offs. That way everyone could get their hands on these items without breaking the bank. It would also be a great way for fans to really get involved in their hobby. Am I just crazy, or does that sound cool to anyone else?
